Policies


Widthdrawal Policy

Due to the increase in withdrawals over the past few years, the AAU World Golf Tour has instituted the following withdrawal policy for juniors who withdraw from an event after they have started their first round.

Once play begins, all juniors wishing to withdraw must report in person to the Tournament Director before leaving the golf course (or city in which the event is taking place) and before the competition has closed. The Tournament Director may ask the junior to talk to the Medical Attendant. The Tournament Director may also ask the junior's fellow-competitors questions about the illness or injury. Based on the information gathered, the AAU World Golf Tour Tournament Director will categorize the junior's withdrawal in one of three categories listed below and the corresponding action will take place:

Justified Withdrawal
The junior is obviously ill, injured, or a family tragedy has occurred.

The Tournament Director and the junior will sign the Withdrawal Form and 'JWD' will be listed next to the junior's name in the tournament results. The Tournament Director will report the withdrawal to the AAU World Golf Tour Review Board and no further action will be taken.

Questionable Withdrawal
The Tournament Director and Medical Attendant are unable to determine if the junior is withdrawing for a legitimate reason such as illness or injury. In the case of an extreme weather delay, which may cause a junior to miss a flight and/or incur substantial costs, withdrawing from a tournamentfor this reason would result in a questionable withdrawal.

If the Tournament Director is unable to determine if a junior has legitimate reason for withdrawing from a tournament he/she will rule the withdrawal questionable. The Tournament Director and the junior will sign the Withdrawal Form and 'QWD' will be listed next to the junior's name in the tournament results. The Tournament Director will report the withdrawal to the AAU World Golf Tour Review Board and a questionable withdrawal will be recorded in the junior's history.

Once a junior receives two questionable withdrawals their membership will be suspended and the junior will not be eligible for year-end honors.

No Cards/No Shows
The junior is disqualified under the USGA Rules of Golf. This includes, but is not limited to, juniors leaving the golf course or city in which the event is conducted or failing to show up for any subsequent rounds of an event without talking to the Tournament Director in person.

Disqualification penalties that occur due to intent or a deliberate decision by the player will be listed as DQ Rule 6-3a (NC or NS) and printed next to the junior's name in the tournament results. The Tournament Director will report the disqualification to the AAU World Golf Tour Review Board. The junior's membership will be suspended and the junior will not be eligible for year-end honors. If a junior has previously been accepted into a future AAU World Golf Tour tournament(s), they will be withdrawn immediately. If the Tournament Committee feels that the disqualification penalty was one in which there was no intention or managed purpose by the player, it will be listed as�DQ Rule 6-3a.

Pace of Play Policy

PACE OF PLAY PROCESS
The AAU World Golf Tour Tournament Committee will designate a minimum of six (6) holes on the course as timing checkpoints. A volunteer will be stationed at each timing checkpoint and signal each group with a color-coded card (green, single red or double red) indicating a group's position on the course. Penalties will be confirmed with groups by an AAU World Golf Tour Tournament Committee member and verified in the scoring tent.�It is the responsibility of the player to know which color cards they receive at all checkpoint holes.

OVERALL TIME PAR
Overall time par is the amount of time in which the AAU World Golf Tour Tournament Committee expects all players to complete a round. This will be expressed on a per hole basis and an overall time for 18 holes. In part, time par is established with the understanding that 45 or more seconds is excessive to play a shot without distractions.

  • A group's time begins when a member of the group has played a stroke from his starting teeing ground.
  • Checkpoint times are measured when the flagstick is replaced in the hole after all players in the group have holed out.
  • The AAU World Golf Tour Tournament Committee may adjust time par between tournament rounds.
OUT OF POSITION
"Out of position" is defined as:
  • Failure to complete the hole being played in less than the time established by the committee after the group immediately ahead put the flagstick in on that hole (i.e. 14 minutes is defined as 14:00:00).

* The first group(s) of the day is judged only against time par until they get into position with any group that may be ahead of them.

TIMING CARDS
Volunteers stationed at each checkpoint hole will signal the group according to their position on the course.

  • Green card�(No Penalty): The group is in position�AND/OR�within overall time par through that checkpoint.
  • Single Red card�(Warning): The group is out of position�AND�behind overall time par through that checkpoint.
  • Double Red card�(One-Stroke Penalty): The group is out of position, behind overall time par through that checkpoint�AND�did not make its required checkpoint-to-checkpoint time determined at the last red card checkpoint.


PENALTIES/BAD TIMES

  • Bad times: A player has recorded a bad time when he has taken in excess of 45 seconds to play a shot once it is his turn to play and there are no distractions. Players will be notified of the number of bad times they have committed when they receive their first red card.
  • Double red card: A one-stroke penalty may be assessed to each member in the group if the group receives a double red card. The one-stroke penalty will be assessed to any player with multiple bad times (minimum of three).

* A penalty stroke is added to the hole where the infraction incurred. Penalties will be confirmed with the group by an AAU World Golf Tour Rules Official and verified in the scoring area.

UNDUE DELAY

  • If a player records five (5) bad times during the round, they will receive a one-stroke penalty for undue delay. Players will be warned after receiving four (4) bad times.
  • The player will receive another penalty stroke if they record two (2) or more additional bad times.

RESCINDING A RED CARD
A red card can be rescinded in two ways:

  • Group is in position with the group immediately ahead through next checkpoint.
  • Group is on or below overall time par through next checkpoint.

FACTORS IN DETERMINING TIME PAR
Listed are factors the AAU World Golf Tour takes into consideration in creating a fair time par at each event:

  • Difficulty and length of course
  • Walks between holes
  • Conditions of competition
  • Pace of play history for course

The AAU World Golf Tour reserves the right to adjust the Pace of Play Policy.

PACE OF PLAY TIPS

The following tips will enhance your tournament experience and can keep your group from receiving a red card during your round.

  • Show identifying marks on your golf ball to fellow competitors.
  • Get your yardage before it is your turn to play.
  • Read your putt before it is your turn to play.
  • Recognize when someone will need the flag tended or your ball marked.
  • Get to your next shot without delay. It is more important what you do between shots than during.
  • Be aware of who is away. If you're not sure, ask.
  • Know where your group is in relation to the group in front of you.
  • Anyone can search for a lost ball. Have your parents and spectators one shot ahead of your group to spot errant shots.
  • If a ball is not found after a brief search, the fellow competitors should go forward and play their shots to the green and let the player and spectators continue the search.
  • If your ball might be lost outside a water hazard or out of bounds, play a Provisional Ball (Rule 27-2).
  • If a situation arises and you do not know how to proceed, play a second ball under Rule 3-3 and continue play (stroke play only). You must report the facts to the AAU World Golf Tour staff afterwards regardless of score.
  • Place golf bag off the putting green near the next teeing ground. This avoids holding up the following group to hit while a player retrieves their golf bag from the front of the green.

Code of Conduct

The AAU World Golf Tour takes great pride in the quality of its players, host facilities and broad community involvement at each tournament. In order to continue making the AAU World Golf Tour experience enjoyable and rewarding for everyone, the Association requires all members to adhere to a set of guidelines known as the Code of Conduct. Its purpose is to help AAU World Golf Tour participants grow and mature by understanding and accepting the consequences of their actions. The Code of Conduct is to be followed throughout the junior's membership.

VIOLATIONS OF CODE OF CONDUCT
Any of the following actions by an AAU World Golf Tour member at an AAU World Golf Tour event, non-AAU World Golf Tour event or toward another AAU World Golf Tour member anywhere, constitutes a violation of the AAU World Golf Tour Code of Conduct:

  • Unsportsmanlike conduct, including abusive language, cheating, club throwing, disrespect to�
    volunteers, officials or fellow competitors, or abuse of golf course property
  • Not adhering to the dress code at the host golf course
  • Use or association with drugs, alcohol, or smoking or chewing tobacco products
  • Vandalism at the host hotel, abusive behavior to host family or property
  • Conduct not becoming of an AAU World Golf Tour player, such as acting in anger or creating other distractions
  • Physical abuse, threat of physical abuse, verbal abuse, slander or libel towards other players, parents, coaches, sponsors, host golf course staff or members, AAU World Golf Tour staff or volunteers in any medium

REQUIRED DRESS AT THE GOLF COURSE:

  • Hats/visors must be worn with brim forward, males must remove hat/visor while indoors
  • Collared shirts or mock turtlenecks (host golf course permitting) must be worn and tucked in at all times
  • Women's fashion shirts without a collar must have sleeves
  • Women's fashion shirts must not rise above the belt line at anytime during the golf swing
  • Women's shorts must be no more than 5" above the knee OR the inseam of the shorts must measure at least 5"

PROHIBITED DRESS AT THE GOLF COURSE:

  • Tank tops, T-shirts
  • Denim shorts, short-shorts, cut-off shorts, gym shorts, jeans
  • Earrings (males)
  • Body piercings
  • Tattoos (must be covered)

Proper attire is required at all times at the host golf course, including cookouts. Questionable attire will be reviewed by the Tournament Committee. Should a host golf course have a stricter dress code, its policy will take precedence. Players in violation will not be allowed to tee off. There is no required dress code for Players Registration and Meeting when taking place at the host hotel when the host hotel is not associated with the host golf course. When the Players Meeting takes place at a Resort all attendees must be in golf attire if they plan on using the practice facilities. Males, however, must still take off their hats when indoors.

PLAYERS REGISTRATION
If a player does not attend the Players Registration and Meeting, if applicable without prior arrangements with the Tournament Director, the player may not receive his or her tournament gifts.

CODE OF CONDUCT VIOLATION PENALTIES
Any Code of Conduct violation will result in a written letter to the player and his or her parent/guardian. The AAU World Golf Tour Tournament Committee may assess any or all of the following penalties based on severity and frequency of the violation(s):

  • One-stroke penalty for each act of unsportsmanlike behavior on the golf course
  • Immediate disqualification from the tournament at which the violation occurs
  • Depending on the severity of the violation, a tournament disqualification may also result in disqualification from the next event(s) for which a player has been accepted
  • The AAU World Golf Tour reserves the right to suspend or revoke a player's membership for a major breach of the AAU World Golf Tour Code of Conduct
  • Violation of the AAU World Golf Tour Code of Conduct may affect a players eligibility for invitationals and post-season honors

AAU World Golf Tour members violating the AAU World Golf Tour Code of Conduct at non-AAU World Golf Tour championships are also subject to the penalties above based on severity.

SUSPENSION INFORMATION
In the event of a suspension, both the player and parent/guardian will be required to submit a written account of the Code of Conduct violation to the AAU World Golf Tour Chief Operations Officer within 30 days of the suspension. The AAU World Golf Tour Chief Operations Officer will determine the length of the suspension after reviewing all submitted materials, including an AAU World Golf Tour tournament staff account of the violation. Any player whose membership is under suspension will not be eligible for postseason honors. The Code of Conduct will be outlined by the AAU World Golf Tour staff at each tournament's Players Registration, Players Meeting or during the Practice Round.


Conforming Lists

The United States Golf Association has compiled a list of driving clubs that do not conform and golf balls that do conform. These clubs are prohibited from use in any round of golf conducted under the USGA Rules. This includes competitions conducted by the American Junior Golf Association. They have also added a Conforming Driver Head list.

The AAU World Golf Tour will have an updated list on non-conforming drivers, conforming golf balls and conforming driver heads at the starting tee at all tournament rounds and at the registration table at all qualifiers and shotgun rounds. The AAU World Golf Tour also administers an equipment survey during the first round where each player must acknowledge what type of driver and golf ball they use to an AAU World Golf Tour official. It is recommended that all players check the status of their driver, golf ball and driver head prior to their round. The penalty for playing a shot with equipment not allowed by the USGA is disqualification.
